My cousin Laura tucked this into my shopping bag while we were at Wholefoods and BOY am I glad she did. This is the best granola I have ever tasted. The Original cereal is loaded with all the good stuff (amaranth, quinoa, chia seeds, coconut oil)
free of refined sugars, gluten, and it's vegan.
Their mission ..".. to recreate the most delicious baked goods using the highest-quality natural and organic ingredients, loaded with health benefits and free of the bad stuff."
And that exactly what they do. Nibble for yourself. Love it.

When the weekend rolls around, I'm looking for a tasty treat to make. Eli is home now and missed out on this deliciousness last time around. So, it's off to the produce market I go for the freshest lemongrass, cilantro and ginger I can find.
This recipe is from The Sprouted Kitchen, a favorite place to get lost in the most amazing whole foods recipes and tastiest of photographs.
THAI SOBA NOODLE BOWL // Serves 4
Adapted from Food and Wine via Harold Dieterle of Kin Shop, New York
I know heat is subjective, so I am giving amounts for a medium spicy soup. I would start there and add accordingly. It's tougher to neutralize the spice in a soup like this, so start moderate. The original recipe calls for fish sauce, which I can't handle, so I opted for peanut butter and tamari. I'm sure you can find the original on their website.
1 14 oz. pkg. Extra Firm Tofu
2 Tbsp. Tamari or Low Sodium Soy Sauce
2 tsp. Sesame or Olive Oil
2 Thai Chiles or half of one VERY Small Habanero, seeded and chopped
3 Stalks Fresh Lemongrass, inner bulbs, finely chopped
4 Cloves Garlic
1 Large Shallot
1/4 Cup Peeled and Chopped Fresh Ginger
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
2 1/2 Cups Coconut Milk (about a can and a half)
1 heaping Tbsp. Muscavado or Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp. Tamari or Low Sodium Soy Sauce
3 Tbsp. Natural Smooth Peanut Butter
Zest of Two Limes
Juice of One Lime
Salt and Pepper
2 Cups Roughly Chopped Mushrooms (I used medium portabellos)
Around 9oz. Soba Noodles, love these
Fresh Cilantro, roughly chopped, for garnish

I took these before & after pictures during studio classes today.
The set up for each project is a reflection of the outcome of the process.
I love the trace left behind where the children have
and created with the materials set out for them.
I love the energy and hum that is swirling through the studio as they work.
I love the look on their faces and their bodies as they think.
I love that they love what they do.
And THAT is why I love what I do.

...by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects. the papers are treated as if cloth, with the main technique employed being stitch; a contemporary twist on traditional textiles. the papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms.
LOOK here for more goodness.
